You may write your smart client app in WPF, Xamarin, WebAssembly (Blazor), or even Windows Forms. In any case, your app probably calls back-end services and needs to interact with app servers. Some or all of your business logic may run on the client, the app server, or both. That's ideal for the balance between user interactivity, performance, scalability, and security. The widely-used open source CSLA .NET framework helps you create a reusable, scalable, and cross-platform portable business layer that lets your application run on multiple types of client devices, including the browser via WebAssembly, while sharing business logic between the clients and your app server. This session is an end-to-end walkthrough of how this works and how you can benefit.

You will learn:

  • Why separation of concerns is critical to building maintainable apps
  • How to use the open source CSLA .NET framework to create reusable business logic
  • How to share common code across platforms including mobile and browsers
